John has twenty years of osteopathic experience, and tutored technique and in the clinic of the British College of Osteopathic Medicine for five years. Originally from East London, after travels abroad and time elsewhere in London, he settled in Bethnal Green to live and work in 2001, and has experienced the enormous changes to Tower Hamlets and Hackney. He enjoys treating all ages from infants to older people and is as comfortable with direct mechanical osteopathic manipulations as he is with gentle and subtle cranial osteopathic techniques.
Arturo is an experienced osteopath helping adults with a wide variety of issues, and has a particular interest in sporting injuries and the management of pain during and after pregnancy. He benefitted from four years of non-osteopathic work, shadowing and assisting physiotherapists and midwifes, assisting women through their pregnancies as part of the Womens' Health Team at University College Hospital London (UCLH).
We both integrate Medical (Western) Acupuncture techniques into treatments where appropriate, can provide relief and support through the application of kinesiology taping, and actively engage patients in exercise rehabilitation to reduce pain and to improve quality of life.
Consultations & Treatments
The initial consultation is an hour in length and your follow-up treatments 45 minutes. This is longer than many clinics provide, and allows for a thorough assessment and treatment at every stage, and time to engage you in a tailored programme of advice and exercise.
We aim to help you quickly resolve your issues, and to empower you to prevent their return.
The FAQ page will answer many of your questions, and gives the policy on late cancellations etc. Concession fees are available, and further reductions can be discussed on the day.
We look forward to meeting you.
"Really great treatment from Arturo. Completely reassuring and instantly effective. Sessions relieved pain quickly and advice and exercises helped in the longer term."
"Arturo thoroughly assessed my problems and recommended to do dry needling together with stretching. I have seen Arturo for 2 months now and my pain significantly improved. He is an amazing osteopath and I cannot thank him enough - my life quality has improved so much since I have started seeing him! Can highly recommend the whole practice!!!"
"John asked many questions trying to diagnose me over the phone and believed I had sciatica. I decided to put my trust and pay John a visit, which from the moment you enter the place, it's very welcoming professional reception ladies, to the relaxing music and comfortable seating area. I saw John instantly on the time booked and after seeing him for 3 minutes, his diagnostic was correct... I had sciatica. From then on I saw John once or twice a week for around a month, having all sorts of exercises/stretches to which I was then cured."
